“I can’t believe I lost my first tooth!”

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on March 19, 2010

These are the words that my elated 5-year-old keeps repeating.

Over. And over. And over again.

Yes, I have one excited kiddo on my hands!

When I asked Josh what the most exciting part about losing a tooth was, he quickly replied,

“Getting money!”

Note to self: Remember to swap out the “lost” tooth for a couple bucks tonight while Josh slumbers!

Do you play the tooth fairy for your kiddos?
How much do you leave for their missing teeth?

Too funny! Hopefully the Tooth Fairy is on duty tonight. :) She often falls asleep on the job at my house!

I find it interesting that you do the Tooth Fairy but mot Halloween or Santa. We do Halloween but not Santa or the Tooth Fairy.

Yay for losing his first tooth, what an exciting event!!

My children have always been aware that the “tooth fairy” was me… I have never withheld that fact from them. There have been many times when my kids have handed their lost teeth directly over to me so as to receive a couple of dollars. They’re cool with that.

To us this is completely different than Halloween, Santa, and even the Easter Bunny, in that the “tooth fairy” is not attached to a major holiday or treated as such, thus taking away from the true meaning of say, Christmas or Easter.

That makes sense, it’s not corrupting any of God’s teaching.

I love it! I recently wrote a post about how cheap the tooth fairy is at our house after my daughter lost both her top front teeth. The tooth fairy leaves 25 to 50 cents per tooth. Like I said we’re cheap. And if the tooth fairy forgets that there’s a tooth under the pillow, the kids just ask if they can grab some change from my wallet. ;)

Hey Josh!
I know you called me to tell me you lost your tooth and I feel most honored that you did, but I truly couldn’t believe it until I actually saw you tooth-less on Sunday! I still am in shock that you lost your first tooth!! That is some cool stuff! I love you, Aunt Sara :)
